Jayson Tatum put up 35 points and a strong fourth quarter in a dominant win against the New York Knicks, while the Washington Wizards’ late-game collapse allowed the Toronto Raptors to steal a four-point win.
Here are our favorite NBA player prop picks for Tuesday.
Embiid is second in the league in scoring and putting up 32.4 points per night. His teammate, Tyrese Maxey, stole the headlines with a 50-point showing the last time the Philadelphia 76ers met the Indiana Pacers, but the reigning MVP still had 37 points and 13 rebounds.
The Pacers are on pace to have the best offensive rating in league history but also can’t guard anybody. They’re 27th in defensive rating and 28th in points allowed and should provide little resistance to Embiid on Tuesday night.
Hayes has been an extremely inefficient player over his four-year career, but he’s been on a hot streak recently. In November, the 22-year-old is shooting 44.6% from the field and 37.5% from beyond the arc while averaging 12.6 points and going over 10.5 points in four of seven games.
Hayes also has a matchup advantage going against the Atlanta Hawks, who will have to stick the much smaller Trae Young on him. Young has shown greater attention to detail on defense but is still far too light and diminutive to provide any downhill resistance, so Hayes should have a path to attack the basket.
Bridges took the world by storm after moving to the Brooklyn Nets in the Kevin Durant trade with the Phoenix Suns but has failed to hit that same peak in the new season. The 27-year-old is scoring 20.2 points per night on 44.9% from the field and a career-worst 26.9% from beyond the arc, and his numbers are down across the board in November.
Bridges hit the over two times in the entire season and is facing an Orlando Magic squad that ranks second in defensive rating and sixth in points allowed per game. Orlando also has lots of length that will bother Bridges as he attempts to get moving downhill.
The era of Jackson Jr. as the second option has not worked out well, as the Memphis Grizzlies are only 2-8 and desperately miss Ja Morant. Jackson Jr. has averages of 20.5 points, 47% field goal shooting, and 32% three-point shooting, and scored 12 and 14 points in his most recent games.
Jackson Jr. struggled when the Grizz met Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Playoffs a year ago and averaged 18 points on 42/28/86 shooting splits. LeBron James is questionable, but his potential absence would only leave Davis on the court even longer.
Towns averages 1.9 made threes per game and is shooting 34.7% from long range, the lowest of his career since his rookie year. However, he’s up to 40.6% from three-point territory in November and made 3+ in two of his last three games.
The Golden State Warriors are a small team that doesn’t have a great matchup for Towns when he’s camped out on the perimeter, and they even switched guards onto him when they met a couple of days ago. Watch for him to wield his size advantage and hot shooting streak and sink a few threes.
